Nutrition supplements may be suggested as part of your functional nutrition protocol. Supplementation is used when therapeutic levels of nutrients are needed that cannot be met through diet alone. Short term supplementation may be used to reach certain wellness goals, which can then be maintained through diet. Long term supplementation may be needed with chronic health conditions and to address nutrient depletions associated with common pharmaceutical medications.
Supplements should not be used without professional guidance. In your nutrition consultation, Cindy will consider any health conditions, medications you are using, and your wellness goals when outlining supplementation guidelines.
When supplements are warranted, it is important to select trusted products with guaranteed quality and purity of ingredients. As a service to clients, Cindy will provide you with a written supplement recommendation including dosage guidelines, and will guide you to pharmaceutical grade supplements which can be delivered to your door. She is not employed by or otherwise restricted by any supplement producer, and she only provides supplement recommendations for her clients.
“My role is to ensure my clients make appropriate selections to meet their needs when supplementation is suggested to achieve their health and wellness goals.”
